Food for Thought

I found this over at written by Elizabeth Scalia in her July 30 post.  (Hope you don’t  mind me quoting you, Mrs. Scalia.)

“Christianity is easy to do badly. You take dogma and leave out love –  you’re doing it wrong.

You try to ‘correct’ others and bring too much ‘righteousness’ and not enough love – you’re doing it wrong.

Apply too much love, without accountability – you doing it wrong, then, too.

We cheat Christ when we do it badly.

We cheat Christ and each other when we teach Him badly.

We cheat Christ and each other and the Church when we catechize poorly, or when we approach the Supernatural with superficiality; when we stop applying thought to it.” — Elizabeth Scalia, July 30, 2010
